Surviving the Recession Depression
The enigma of our times we can likely call a recession depression. It is incredibly hard on too many incredible people.
Reading the newspapers, we can see people grinning at their own montage of paparazzi one day and find the very next day their life was miles from wonderful. They might not be be impacted by the recession depression yet depression certainly hits the rich, less-rich and some far from it. There are people who are hit by this recession depression have made their last day, and sadly their family’s last day as well, a final one as a result of their financial downfall. Many are conflicted. We need to get as flexible as possible to weather this recession depression together.
RED HOT TIP :
Do NOT CORRELATE YOUR SELF WORTH
WITH YOUR FINANCIAL WORTH
It is our inner tenacity that we need to tap to help us weather this recession depression. This fiscal landslide we are contending with seems to be unraveling then it stalls. Business as usual has changed. Do spend your time looking for work. Also do things you like that do not cost much. Lay low. I dragged out, to chill out, (laugh not) the embroidery materials never tossed out. Somewhere in the midst of tinkering with beads and embroidery yarn (yawn) my stress level dropped. The drop in the stress level opened up perspectives on a few things. I decided to implement the tiny agenda. At one point, way back, my work was in not one, two or three but four small shops. Worry can block productive thinking, don’t let that happen!

Don’t get drastic on the negative side. There are no cold beers in hell or the happier side of the afterlife. Plus, you can’t exactly dive in the ocean and enjoy it without a body to swim with around in. And, importantly, you can’t lead a better life if you do not have one. Renew!
